The Mass BikePike Tour
What do you think of when you go for a ride? What do you think of when
looking for a tour? We think it’s more than just going from point A to point B.
We think it’s about scenic, well-marked routes through quaint New England towns,
farms and forests, lakes and rivers. We think it’s also about smelling the
flowers, lingering at lunch, eating ice cream, making new friends, taking a
plunge into a pond, buying fruit from a farm, watching a sunset, pedaling at
your own pace, climbing a mountain if you want, recharging, rekindling and
chasing a dream. Welcome to the Mass BikePike Tour; a 4 day event that
celebrates cycling in Massachusetts.
With experience dating back to 2007, we are
dedicated to differentiating ourselves from other tours. Over the years, we
have tweaked and tinkered, added and adjusted and are proud to call ourselves
“The Friendliest Ride in the East”.
For 2014, the Mass BikePike Tour starts and near Ayer, MA. The route will
take us through the quaint towns of Whitinsville, Barre and Winchendon before
heading back to the start. Along with the beautiful scenery, you can look
forward to the climb to the top of Purgatory Chasm and we're working on an
optional special format ride for those looking for a new kind of challenge.
